Software management should form a key part of your safety management system to ensure vessel software security however this can be a time consuming and costly process. To help remove the obstacles of patch management GTMaritime have developed GTDeploy, specially designed for the challenging environments in which vessels operate. GTDeploy allows for IT departments to set up remote deployment of software patches so that they run automatically in the background, removing the need for time consuming manual updates and crew interaction.
It utilises our secure FastNet platform for transferring programs with granular bandwidth control, throttling, prioritisation and optimisation and is simple and easy to use across your whole fleet.

Accessible from anywhere, by authorised users, you will be able to send and retrieve your emails during any interruption in the shipboard email capability, allowing your business to continue uninterrupted.
